These bake out very moist and rise high! Tiny chocolate chips may be subbed for the nuts. Sprinkle lightly with powdered sugar, drizzle with a glaze or frost after baking. Which ever you decide, these are fantastic muffins!

These were easy and tasty! I thought I'd fool my 12yo into eating "Banana Nut Muffins" by using this...he's a chocoholic! didn't work. Nice change from the "same ol; same ol" BNM to making them with chocolate!! Yum! Thanks Kitten!!

Very very good dense muffins! They were appreciated by everyone at the office - managed to "steal" one (!!) and loved it! I didn't add any nuts because of co-workers allergies but will try them again soon with nuts (because I love them!). Thanks Kit!

Nice, dense muffin. I used 1 cup all-purpose and 1 cup whole-wheat PASTRY flour, and 1/3 cup brown sugar and 2/3 cup Splenda. I might add some cinnamon next time for a little added flavor.
